    Default #8350 no spark

    Hi,
    I have a brand new MSD #8350 installed into a reconditioned Ford 351c.
    The problem we are having is that we can't get it to trigger a spark.
    We have power to both the + and - side of the coil (Blaster 2 brand new) but no spark out of the coil.
    The rotor is spinning whilst cranking the engine.
    Checked and triple checked the earth.
    Any help with a diagnostic process would be appreciated.

    was there 12 volts on the coil while cranking?

    Take the negative wire off (orange). Set up the coil lead 1/2 inch from ground. Ignition on. Jump coil negative with a pulsing ground. Does spark jump from the coil now?
    Regards, Gary

    Sounds like the distributor is faulty.

    It's definitely a faulty distributor we replaced it with a friends distributor and alls good.
    I live in Sydney Australia. I wonder how I'll go with getting it fixed.
    Does anyone know what the process is for outside the states?
